Subtitles deleted after unraring
« on: December 16, 2013, 05:40:21 PM »
Hi guys,

I use the "delete archive" after unraring option, problem is when there are subtitles.

Let's say there is a subtitle.rar : in it there is a subtitle.idx and subtitle2.rar containing subtitle.sub

subtitle.rar
-> subtitle.idx
-> subtitle2.rar
     -> subtitle.sub

I think it unrars the first .rar and then deletes automatically all rars, so I have only the idx left, but not the sub file.
Don't really get why those subtitles are compressed twice but that seems to often be the case.

Thanks

You might need to link to a more specific example that's causing you problems, because in every case at my end the embedded .rar and .idx get unrared to the destination folder.

Assuming you do actually unrar to a different folder than the download folder (and you should) reproducible steps would be ideal.

You're right, it works if unrared to a different folder than the download folder, I wasn't doing that ! (seems logic, but why shouldn't I use same folder ?)

You don't really want Alt.Binz to be performing downloading, par checking, unraring and cleanup etc all in the same folder to avoid problems like these. Ideally temp, download and unrar should be on separate drives for best results.

are you sure that subtile.rar contains subtitle2.rar and not the the rar with same name "subtitle.rar"?

actually I checked on a sparks release, what I have is :

movie.rar
movie.r01 ...

and movie.subs.rar, inside is : movie.idx and movie.rar (containing movie.subs)

So we have two different files with the same name movie.rar...

I am seeing very similar behaviour, however, the rar file that contains the .sub file remains in the directory after everything else has been unrared, and clean up has occurred.

Because the subtitles generally are sorted to download after the main movie/tv episode, the .idx is correctly unrared.  The rar file which contains the .sub has been renamed for example as showtitle.s01e01.720p.1.rar stays in the folder.

This means I then have to manually unrar the .sub file.  I generally just use the right-click windows context menu for WinRAR - extract here.

What really needs to happen is a recursive unrar, specifically for the abcxyz-subs.rar file.

In my particular setup, although far from ideal, temp is on a separate drive, but everything downloads, par2 checks and unrars onto the one drive.

I might be able to change the setup of where the file downloads too and where the unrar destination is, but my download machine is really pushed for drive space - everything ends up on an external USB drive, which slows things down a tad further.

Thanks

yes this is really frustrating, especially when you have 50 downloads to deal with :(
